Orlando Pirates legend Bernard Lushozi says he is tired of seeing his beloved club lose to Mamelodi Sundowns, as the two powerhouses of South African football are set for another mouth-watering clash this weekend.
With the two teams preparing for Sunday’s DStv Premiership match at Orlando Stadium, Lushozi has still not recovered from the ‘humiliation’ of the 4-1 loss against Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup two weeks ago.
“I know that Sundowns recently beat Pirates 4-1 in a cup match. Sundowns is a very good team and make no mistake about that. They are the best team in the league in terms of talent. They have all the characteristics of a quality team, whether it’s their technical team or the players, they have it all,” said Lushozi.
“But Pirates will be a home team in this match in Orlando and they have to redeem themselves after the 4-1 loss. Pirates will be against the wall because they will not have anywhere else to move except to move forward. They will have to show that they are an old club. As people who love Pirates, we don’t expect anything besides a win. We are tired of losing to Sundowns and of being humiliated. The only thing to help the situation is to redeem the confidence on our players and the system and we don’t even expect a draw. We expect Pirates to win,” added the legend.
